Paper Abstract

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra spacecraft is one of the key instruments in NASA's Earth Observing System. Since 2000, MODIS has collected continuous data in 36 spectral bands ranging in wavelength between 0.4 μm and 14.2 μm. Since before launch, signal contamination in the form of electronic crosstalk has been observed in many of the MODIS thermal emissive bands, particularly for bands 27-30, a correction for which has been applied to the current Collection 6 algorithm. The mid-wave infrared bands in Terra MODIS, 20-25, also show signs of electronic crosstalk contamination, which can be seen clearly during observations of the Moon. In this paper, we'll present an impact assessment of electronic crosstalk on the mid-wave infrared bands in Terra MODIS. We will also derive correction coefficients from the lunar observations, which can be applied to correct the calibrated radiance in the MODIS Level-1B product. We will provide an analysis of these results and potential improvements to the MODIS Level-1B product.
